“Shameful customer service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We had a rough stay at the Red Carpet Inn. It started off with a very pleasant check in with a female Australian desk agent. She was very welcoming and informative about the festivities going on in Banff that weekend.
HOWEVER...the male agent working at night was absolutely atrocious. After exploring around the town of Banff we returned to our room to find that our bathroom had a maxi pad on the back of the toilette that did not belong to us. Instead of dealing with this immediately, the agent told us that he was in the middle of dinner... The experience with him did not improve after we waited for him. Sorry to inconvenience your staff Red Carpet Inn.
Needless to say, we won't be returning.

Fairly cheap accomodation in Banff! Very fast walk to the town! Room was clean and I found the in-room sink very handy as the sink in the bathroom was very small! I didn't like the first room they put us in as it was near the stairs (yay, foot traffic) but the staff was accommodating and put us in a better room! Breakfast was great - I don't eat breakfast food normally so it was good enough for us. The breakfast may be considered basic to others, but at least it's free. Would we stay here again? Yes. It was very affordable for a three night stay!

Room Tip: Don't choose room 120 - was very dingy looking.

We didn't sleep in the hotel because of an error with our booking with expedia. Even if they didn't have a room available, they accomodated us anyway by sending us to another hotel. Then went beyond what they had to do. Thanks!

We stayed at this lovely welcoming hotel for two nights and would gladly go back. The room was very warm and cosy, and the breakfast was very nice and put us on for a day of walking. Also you can use the facilities of the hotel next door. Which was very handy when we needed to do the laundry. It was also very peaceful and good value for money. Hopefully one day we will return.

Well, we book it via Air Canada and the review was three out of five stars thinking it would be fine.

It turns out the room is a total dump. Noisy room and everything is just old. Is was fairly clean but I would let me bare feet touch the carpet lol.

I won't book a room here is you are looking for a romantic stay.

Breakfast was crap too.

Rooms were warm, clean and comfortable, also quiet, plus the bed was very comfortable so we had a good night's sleep. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and hope to be back again sometime soon.

Got a good deal as we stayed here for 6 nights. Was a large comfortable room but a bit dated. Great views of the mountains. Free wifi. I wouldn't quite call it a continental breakfast but enough fuel for a morning skiing. Informative staff about condition of walking trails. Underground parking. Good walking distance into main shopping/eating area. Has a hot tub with lovely views.
